FAQ

Is 5-MTHF the same as folic acid?

Folic acid is the man-made version of the vitamin folate (also known as vitamin B9). Folic acid is manufactured for use in food fortification and most supplements. Folic acid must be converted enzymatically into 5-MTHF. 5-MTHF is the predominant natural dietary folate and the principal form of folate in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid. Supplementation with 5-MTHF directly raises plasma folate levels more rapidly than an equivalent dose of folic acid.

What is 5-MTHF used for?

Folate helps the body make healthy red blood cells and is directly linked to supporting the correct development of an unborn baby’s brain, skull and spinal cord. 5-MTHF is also involved in the production of serotonin and melatonin and it is indirectly involved in the synthesis of DNA.

Who should take 5-MTHF?

It is important for a woman of childbearing age to get enough folic acid – not just those women who are planning to become pregnant. Those dealing with high levels of stress, and anyone interested in longevity might also find 5-MTHF supplementation beneficial.
